THIS Is Why The Deep State Turned Against Trump

Donald Trump’s presidency was a pipe dream for the wealthy and powerful, and yet the intelligence community still opposed him and even tried to cover up the Hunter Biden laptop story to prevent Trump from winning reelection. The reason is simply because Trump, while delivering on standard Republican issues domestically, was a wild card on foreign policy, frequently seeking to pull back from military deployments, railing against NATO and speaking the occasional truth about the rapaciousness of the U.S. empire.

Guest host Aaron Maté and John Jay College Economics Professor and investigative journalist Christian Parenti discuss the erratic foreign policy program that led the Deep State to turn against Trump.

  1. Pompeo was the one behind Sycamore being wrapped up. The Obama administration also wanted to end it. It was a failure. Parenti's comments tell us what we already know, that the powers that be want to take over the whole world and Trump was a wrench in that system. The propaganda machine (err… the media) being all in on anti-trump made this obvious to all of us.

  2. What if you start by asking the question, "Does this particular piece of imperialism help the average American?" What if you ended that piece if it doesn't? Eventually, you come to realize that whole of imperialism helps no one and that it can be abolished.

    The neocons on the Left and Right don't ask this question because they couldn't care less about the average American, poor Americans or America in general. They only care about their little global network of fellow oligarchs. They couldn't even be bothered to seem to care. Luckily, Trump was too stupid to be beguiled by neocon sophistication.

  3. Mr Paretti got the facts right but his interpretation makes no sense. He basically says that Trump's foreign policy made no sense and that is the reason the establishment was after him. However his arguments cannot explain why the system was after him and his collaborators like General Flynn a year before he became President. The entrapment of General Flynn within a month into his presidency is a strong argument against what he states. How could the establishment hated him when he was barely starting his presidency? Why was the elite so afraid of General Flynn's knowledge of the intelligence agencies and their work in Syria? He totally ignores that Trump's policies are based on his ideology of America First a nationalistic agenda that is totally opposed to the globalist agenda that the current elite in power in the USA follows. Sorry to disagree but Trump's policies are not erratic but based on his mantra America First.

  4. Things have changed radically with the Ukraine situation. I doubt that Trump had time to dwell on the Ukraine situation.
    They impeached him for talking to Zelesky on the phone. Why? they didn't want him to screw up their massive corrupt money laundering operations.
    He understands a lot more now than he did when he was under relentless attack by the Dems and the deep state Russifobia.
    He still was a hundred times better than the current puppet.
